Description

The trail starts by climbing across the field towards the shelter. Pass by the shelter on the left and you will see where the trail enters the woods. The trail travels through the woods along the top of the hill behind the shelter. Near the back corner of the field the trail has a few switch backs as it descends down the hill towards the lookout.

Lakeside Trail

The lookout overlooks the railroad tracks and the lake beyond the tracks. The trail then travels back through the woods at the bottom of the hill, not far from the tracks. Eventually the trail pops out into the field and you will be able to once again see the shelter on the hill. Follow the trail up through the field to the start of the loop, about half way between the parking lot and the shelter.

Directions

From exit 258 on Route 2 drive to the Village of Harvey on route 3. Drive down the hill to the village center, and just past the railroad tracks, turn right into the parking lot. Drive back along the tracks until you see a parking lot on the left. From here you should be able to see the shelter with the red roof up on the hill. The trail enters the woods to the left of the shelter. The other end of the loop trail enters the woods down along the field to the right.
